Over Easter we drove back to Saltash to visit family for the Easter weekend. I made sure I used the time to take some new photos of the area. This photo was taken the morning before we left – perhaps one of the easier photos as the camera was in the conservatory and a cup of tea was nearby!
During the stay in Cornwall, I was able to capture the steam train’s return journey too, although lighting conditions were harsh. There must have been around 100 people watching it from the Tamar Bridge car park!
